Patt Tillman’s Mom “Shocked” by Prince Harry’s ESPY in Her Son’s Name

Responding to the backlash, which included an online petition demanding ESPN reconsider, the network refused to sack Harry.

“ESPN, with the support of the Tillman Foundation, is honoring Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, specifically for the work of The Invictus Games Foundation as it celebrates its 10th year promoting healing through the power of sport for military service members and veterans around the world,” an ESPN spokesperson said in a statement, per The Athletic.

“While we understand not everyone will agree with all honorees selected for any award, The Invictus Games Foundation does incredible work and ESPN believes this is a cause worth celebrating.”
